Hemp = hemp variety = CBD dominate cannabis with low levels of THC
What is CBD?
CBD is legal, non-intoxicating and it will indirectly affect your body’s cannabinoid receptors.
What is THC?
THC is illegal without a medical prescription, intoxicating and it will directly affect your body’s cannabinoid receptors.
Are there other phytocannabinoids?
What is the difference between all the UK CBD oils on the market?
Whole-Plant (Crude) CBD OilLow Quality: Effective: Illegal
CBD Crude is an unrefined extract and is considered low quality, it contains all parts of the cannabis plant including waste material like waxes, lipids and chlorophyll. The more waste material present; the lower the quality which is a result of a poor extraction method. It will contain THC and potentially other controlled cannabinoids like CBN or THCV. Consumers can fail a controlled drugs test.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
A refined cannabis extract that is considered high quality (no waste material). It contains as many valuable compounds from the cannabis plant as possible. It will contain THC along with multiple cannabinoids and all additional cannabis compound groups such as terpenoids and flavonoids. Sadly, even though Full-Spectrum is the most effective type of oil, it is illegal in the UK due to containing controlled substances such as THC, CBN and THCV. Consumers can fail a controlled drugs test.
Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil
A refined extract that is considered high quality (no waste material). It will contain many valuable compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is essentially the same as Full-Spectrum however it has been refined further to remove THC, CBN and THCV (controlled drugs). Consumers will pass a controlled drug test.
Narrow-Spectrum CBD Oil
An overly refined extract, it usually contains just one or possibly two cannabinoids. It will contain some of the other beneficial compounds from the cannabis plant, however a lot of the additional beneficial compounds have been lost through over refinement; reducing effectiveness. Consumers will pass a controlled drug test.
No-Spectrum CBD Oil
Isolates are a purified 99% form of isolated cannabinoids; they are one dimensional and would be considered not to have a spectrum within the cannabis extract classification. They are a single molecule and do not benefit from the entourage effect. They do still work in the body, just much less effectively. Isolates can easily be added to a variety of products. Consumers will pass a controlled drug test.
Which spectrum is Bud & Tender® CBD Cannabis Oil?
Why is whole plant (crude) considered low quality?
For example, this process also holds true in hash making. When making hash, it is only the trichomes that the hash maker is looking to extract and as such, ‘high-grade’ hash contains no excess plant material; it should be purely trichomes (there are even different grades of trichome). Very low-grade hash will contain a lot of excess waste plant material.
The fats, waxes and chlorophyll are only considered bad in extracts/CBD oils. However, they are deemed as good when it comes to hemp seed oil for eating… so be careful not to confuse the two.
Are your products legal in the UK?
Bud & Tender® do not sell any products that violate the UK misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
What is CBN?
What is THCV?
The UK government has classified this molecule as a cannabinol derivative and as such a controlled drug.
Do our body’s produce their own cannabinoids?
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating the biological functions of your body such as pleasure, pain, sleep, appetite, mood, memory, fertility, pregnancy and pre/post-natal development. Its goal is to make sure all these biological functions are in balance.

How much Bud & Tender® CBD Cannabis Oil should I take and when?
You should only supplement when you feel that your endocannabinoid system needs topping up, this is something you will learn to feel. If you wake up and feel great, don’t supplement, save it for when you need it. Everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different; some people require a large serving once per day, others find that smaller servings three time per day (morning, day and night) works better for them. Some people even have a chronically deficient endocannabinoid system and they don’t start to feel the benefits until after two weeks of continuous use. We will say it’s better to start with a small serving and work your way up from there until your find the sweet spot for your body to achieve biological homeostasis (you feeling great again).
